Many of us are looking at our current hardware and asking whether we want to upgrade (or can even afford to do so). Readers have been talking what they like most about their current device, and what tempt them into replacing it.
The discussion has made for fascinating reading, so I have decided to post an open question and ask readers what gadgets they are reading on.
I’ll go first.
Right now I am reading ebooks, Instapaper, emails, and other content on a 10? RCA-branded Viking Pro tablet. It’s thin and light, and I love the huge screen, and best of all this tablet is under-powered when compared to devices like my missing iPad. Given the $80 price tag one wouldn’t expect similar performance, but the limited performance is also secretly a benefit because it keeps me from installing apps. That equals fewer distractions taking me away from my reading.
While I do have a Kindle, as well as other ereaders, I much prefer the tablet. The Kindle’s screen isn’t big enough, and it lacks page turn buttons.
But the next one might have page turn buttons, and that’s why I am so curious about the new Kindle and might buy one for myself.
So what are you reading on?
